Arkansas Bad Drug Lawsuits & Arkansas Defective Medical Device Cases

Many defective drugs and medical devices are deemed unsafe and are immediately removed for consumer use from the marketplace. However, by that time, many patients have suffered significant harm or premature death that could have been prevented had the recall taken place earlier. Because of that, victims and surviving family members are forced to file Arkansas bad drug lawsuits, medical malpractice claims and Arkansas defective medical device cases against manufacturers, doctors and hospitals.

The detailed list of linked resources below can serve as a valuable tool in initiating the first steps of filing a claim for compensation against those who caused you harm. The information includes the Arkansas statute of limitations, and links to medical resources, legal resources, state, county and city bar associations and access to legal services.

State of Arkansas Statute of Limitations

Arkansas Civil Statute of Limitations Laws — Code Provisions (Section 16-114-203)

The Arkansas statute of limitations code restricts the amount of time victim has to file a compensation claim or lawsuit against every party at fault for their harm. This might include doctors, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and medical device companies who manufacture hip implants, vaginal mesh devices and others.

It is up to the victim to prove they have suffered serious injury or the family has suffered a wrongful death of a loved one. It is their obligation to file the required documentation in the appropriate Arkansas courthouse before the statute of limitations expires to ensure their rights to seek financial compensation are preserved.

  • Personal Injury / Negligence – 2 Years
  • Product Liability – 2 Years
  • Wrongful Death – 2 Years
  • Medical Malpractice – 2 Years
    • Exceptions
    • “(b) The date of the accrual of the cause of action shall be the date of the wrongful act complained of and no other time. However, where the action is based upon the discovery of a foreign object in the body of the injured person which is not discovered and could not reasonably have been discovered within such two-year period, the action may be commenced within one (1) year from the date of discovery or the date the foreign object reasonably should have been discovered, whichever is earlier.
  • (c) (1) If an individual is nine (9) years of age or younger at the time of the act, omission, or failure complained of, the minor or person claiming on behalf of the minor shall have until the later of the minor’s eleventh birthday or two (2) years from the act, omission, or failure in which to commence an action.
  • (2) However, if no medical injury is known and could not reasonably have been discovered prior to the minor’s eleventh birthday, then the minor or his representative shall have until two (2) years after the medical injury is known or reasonably could have been discovered, or until the minor’s nineteenth birthday, whichever is earlier, in which to commence an action.”
